A sophisticated new adaptation of Henry James’ gothic horror classic, Turn of the Screw, is completing a tour of UK theatres.
It arrived in Cardiff last night (May 22) for the final leg of the tour, and our senior consultant Andrew Weltch was there to review it for our associate local news site Rhiwbina Info.
“This production, adapted by Tim Luscombe and directed by Daniel Buckroyd, stars Carli Norris as the governess, who as an innocent 20-year-old arrives for her first job in a remote and sinister country house, and who – 30 years later – is forced to reveal exactly what happened as she faced malevolent ghosts who threatened the children in her charge,” he writes.
“This is a sophisticated adaptation of a gothic horror classic, which manages to remain faithful to the original, while finding a clever new way to tell the ‘story within a story’. It’s also genuinely unsettling.”
It runs at the New Theatre, Cardiff until Saturday.
